A Linux Powered Console Server Allows You to Manage Remote Network Devices Without Service Calls

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

One of the most aggravating problems that a network administrator is forced to deal with, is when a malfunctioning network element at a remote equipment rack suddenly stops working and takes network communications down with it. If the errant network element was located in the next room, or if you could communicate with the failed device in order to get it up and running again, then the solution would be pretty simple, but when a problematic router or misbehaving server at a remote network equipment site disrupts network communication and makes your life miserable, often the only way to correct the problem is a long, time-consuming trip to the remote site, or an expensive service call or truck roll.
